Capcom has revealed update sales figures for a number of its franchises, as well as confirmed that Resident Evil 5 has overtaken Street Fighter II to become its most successful game
Doesn't surprise me. I still pick my copy and play it often.
Hitting the 'extremely cheap bin for ****ing shit games' will do that.
I don't know about you guys but this is sad news. Re5 was worse than re4. RE4 was not a true RE game but still it was fine. Long time RE fans would attest to that. RE6 was more like a middle finger to aaaallll the RE fanbase.
well said ! Huge disappointment after 4. Level 1/intro was interesting with it's risky racial stereotyping... zombies with black attitude. But it was short and forgettable.
this shows how low gaming is nowadays.. thisgame can be a good action game but the worst RE game ever.
After playing re6, I would have to say that re5 is a bit of alright cause I find it way better and more fun than re6.
Ironically upon the announcement of this game, this is when Capcom started to care more about money then the game quality. This is when Capcom started going downhill in terms of quality when they started making games outside the PlaySation.
Is it a great ResidentEvil game? no But is it a awesome co-op game? Yes If it wasn't called Re I think people would if liked it more
It was a good game, it just wasn't a good Resident Evil game, the level design was far too disjointed, it just wasn't as cohesive as the past game's, the co-op itself completely undermined the concept of "survival horror" you're supposed to feel helpless, weak, alone, the emphasis on shooting as well as partner by your side contradicts that, I prefer to call the game a "Survival Action" if anything. That said I did have fun playing it, when I ignored the fact that it was a Survival Horror and Resident Evil.
It was an ok co op game. It doesn't change the fact that the game was uninspired in many ways. Was it some fun? Sure, but i'll never play it again, it wasn't 'that' fun. There are much better co op games out there. l4d, Halo, Gears etc
RE1 and ZERO were masterpieces. RE2 and RE3 were true classic.
Zero is my fav I just love billy and Rebecca
I think it was a great game, but it wasn't like the previous RE games in terms of being scary and creepy.
what? seriously?.... ok is resi 6 is the worse one?
Yea, Resident Evil 6 is the worst one. And 5 is nowhere as golden as previous RE games so I'm surprised it's the top selling RE game. Hopefully Capcom makes an HD remake of RE2, the best one in my opinion since they're shitting bricks with gaining profits and a remake of 2 would get a lot of positive attention. :)
Good then, maybe Capcom will finally learn what an actual RE game is.
Resident Evil 1 was the only scary game in the series, in my opinion. I loved 2, 3 and 4, but the series has become too action heavy.
You fight tanks and apache helicopters as bosses and bomb ships with a fighter jet, so yes, RE6 is the worst one.
So main problem RE 6 Is Chris Campaign ?
No gantarat the whole game is the problem. Since RE4 the series has gone to the dogs.
I dunno about that fossilfern, Revelations was pretty good.
and Jake's campaign.
Resident Evil 6 is my favorite after the original. Just being honest.
Yeah, but I still don't get why everybody hates on RE5. Everybody say it wasn't scary, if Capcom take RE 7 back to its RE 0-3 roots, everybody is going to scream Tank controls, monster in the closets scares is outdated, is this 1995? RE 6 for what's it worth is scary for the most part, just certain campaigns like Leon K is so much better than what you get from Jake. Jake campaign made me put the game down, stuck in the hospital level with no motivation to push past it. But getting it for $27, the RE 6 Archives is pretty sweet, brings back memories. I which Capcom would remake RE 0 HD, that game for me is a toss up with RE4 for next best in the series. Heck I wouldn't mind the Game Cube RE 1 remake at 1080P, let me stop, always a RE fan except for the light gun games, and Raccoon city.
So I guess this curbstomps any hope of returning to Survival Horror roots. I was gladdened when they acknowledged RE6's faults but now that RE5 has takent his spot, I expect there'll be more boulder punching in RE7
That's just sad
Well obviously resi 5 got the advantage from resi 4 having a good reputation and built off its hype. Just like the ps2 building off the success of ps1. Yah follow I know all my mates didnt own resi 4 they just borrowed my gamecube and than when resi 5 came out they knew resi 4 was good so kapow they went and got a copy.
Yeap Resi 5 piggybacked off of the expectations of greatness to come left by Resi 4!
To make things worse, Capcom released a 'HD remake' of Resi Evil 4, which ended up just being a crappy upscale of the PS2 version. RE4 deserves a proper HD edition.
Yeah I got 4 on Xbox live when I picked RE6, it was abit different then what I remembered from the Game Cube version. But with that said I still think RE 5 is the 2nd best in the series right behind Code Veronica, followed by RE2.
Not to mention, RE5 had a MASSIVE marketing campaign. I remember seeing ads for it everywhere when it was first released, so it's no wonder it sold well.
It had the kill unpleasant black African people controversy too which got it a lot of attention
Yeah thats what I was trying to say in a simple way lol haha piggy back was the word I was looking for Although resi 2 was my all time favorite and than resi remake was pretty darn good
The first 3 resident evils on ps1 are better than re5
That sounds about right, 2nd best in the series right behind RE Code Veronica, followed by RE 2 and RE 4. I did like Resident Evil Revelations demo, but I didn't see the point paying $50 for it. Heck still playing RE 6, which at times is hard to play with certain characters. The version I got included RE5, RECV, RE4, and the latest RE CG movie so it was a pretty good deal for $27 a couple of months ago. Probably the reason why RE 6 is at 5.2 million. Update
Resident Evil 5 was good game. But noog enough like Resident Evil 1-2-3-Code V-RE1 Remake- RE Zero and RE4. I dont want anyone arround me while i m playing. Hey common if somebody is behind me and hit enemies without my permission, and if there is always light why would i scared ? I dont like the COOP idea in Resident Evil Game. Also RES5 was too much shiny, too much light and no zombies. It wasn't scary. Do not want to talk about RES6. That was terrible game.. For now all my hope is Shinji Mikami's new game, " The Evil Within". Capcom must return to root RE Games or kill the franchise. There's no other way for me to play Resi games again. Too much action, terrible controls, no zombies, light and stupid boss scenes like ship, helis, extc.. Really ? Realy cRapCom :P
No Zombies in RE 4 Too
I know.. But atleast Shinji Mikami made it. And it was dark parts in that game. Actually i prefer Resident Evil 3.5 to RES4. Search youtube for Resident Evil 3,5. It was more terryfying game then RE4. But for RE4 was good.. Yes not good enough for a Resi Games but it was ok.. Anyway better then RE5 and RE6 ( Ohh and that Crap RE OP Raccoon City .. ).. Well thats my idea. Noone have to agree with me. But i really really want to play The Evil Within. I hope it ll not be like RE 3,5 and RE4. I mean all we see from the demo but it s just the Proloque version. Just like the RE3,5.. We saw the RE3,5 video and then we get excited.. And then we had RE4.. Much of action and less horror.. I want to believe in Shinji Mikami for The Evil Within. Because at the last generation we didnt have the Survival Horror game. Only Dead Space 1. But i m not counting it. Because it was science finction game. But TEWithin looks cool. I hope it ll be a good game. And for a next RES game.. No, unfortunately i have no hope for it..
Resident Evil 6 is the best since the original.. or second..
It was a good game, but not a good Resident Evil game. Now RE6 was BOTH a bad game, and a bad Resident Evil game. I will never forget the awful Landing-a-plane-with-QTEs
I wasn't surprised at how RE turned out. Every character been through everything. It can't be survival horror when everyone is a well trained professional that now know what it's like to be in a outbreak.
"Resident Evil 5 Becomes Capcom's Best Seller" lol no wonder their dead.
RE 5 is not a bad game. but honestly RE 6 for me is better. you can punch kick enemies without stunning them, you can dodge at will and can move while you are aiming just like the rest of the 3rd party shoot mechanics. unlike RE 5 you can't move while aiming and needs to hit an arm or leg to stun and and punch them which in real life you could just punch and kick anytime. and RE 6 while not so scary has more interesting enemies especially the return of the zombies while RE 5 you just deal with ganado like parasite driven people not actually undead. and RE 5 is so short could finish it within 4 hours while RE 6 6-7 hours. RE 4 was one of the best and the longest RE. my top 1. is RE remake 2. RE 4 3. RE 2 :)
